The Big Event

After getting loaded up on free stuff from The Big Event Ceremony, we headed over to Al's house to help him clean his yard and clean the deck. As a group, we had such a great time helping Al and his wife do yard work around their house. Once the yard work was finished, Al's lovely wife made us some DELICIOUS jambalaya and cajun shrimp soup.
